Canon’s EOS R series of full-frame mirrorless cameras deliver all the benefits of large-sensor photography and movie-making in bodies that are more compact and lightweight than traditional DSLRs. 

The latest pro-spec Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6 redefine mirrorless performance, offering advanced, industry-first features that set a new benchmark for hybrid cameras. 

As the flagship of the EOS R range, the EOS R5 packs the cream of cutting-edge Canon technology. Capable of recording sensational 45-megapixel high-resolution stills in bursts up to 20fps, it never misses a beat.

With 5940 autofocus positions, Animal Tracking and Eye Detection AF, the EOS R5’s next-level Dual Pixel CMOS AF II system offers exceptional focusing precision. 

Powerful image stabilization, achieved through a combination of an in-body image stabilizer and lens-based stabilization, delivers up to 8-stops of shake reduction for super-sharp images every time.

The EOS R5 is a full-featured tool for all film-makers too. It’s the first ever full-frame mirrorless camera to record cinematic 8K 12-bit RAW video up 30fps internally, as well as high frame rate 4K to 120p for smooth slow-motion playback. You can even extract 35-megapixel stills from 8K video clips, so you can find and freeze the perfect moment in your own time.

If you don’t need the 8K video specification, but still want to step up to professional mirrorless performance, then the EOS R6 with its manageable 20.1-megapixel file size is a great choice. 

Like the EOS R5, it offers up to 12fps shooting with its mechanical shutter, as well as a silent electronic option that captures high-speed bursts at up to 20fps. It can also record crisp and detailed 4K video footage at up to 60p, and features Canon Log and HDR PQ options if you need to capture more dynamic range.

The EOS R6 shares the same ground-breaking intelligent autofocus technology as the EOS R5. Powered by the new DIGIC X processor, the Dual Pixel CMOS AF II system stays locked onto people even if they turn away from the camera, and it can even identify and track cats, dogs and birds with its intelligent AF.

Being able to push the EOS R6’s sensitivity all the way to ISO 102,400 means it’s also the perfect camera for low-light photography. Its in-body five-axis image stabilizer works co-operatively with stabilized RF lenses to provide up to 8-stops of stability for sharp handheld results as light levels drop.

At the heart of the Canon EOS R system is the innovative RF lens mount. Its combination of a large diameter and shorter flange distance from the mount to the sensor allows for large aperture lens designs that offer superior image quality.

The future-proof 12-pin RF mount features four more electrical contacts than the EF mount and enables higher-bandwidth communication between the lens and the camera. 

The increased amount of data being passed back and forth enables a host of improvements, including high-precision autofocus tracking with Eye Detection AF, superior image stabilization, and real-time Digital Lens Optimizer which corrects for distortions and aberrations without any affect on shooting performance.

The EOS R system is supported by a growing range of dedicated Canon RF lenses. This includes unique zooms, such as the bright, prime-quality Canon RF 28-70mm F2L USM and discreet Canon RF 70-200mm F2.8L IS USM, as well as pioneering fixed-focal length lenses like the Canon RF 800mm F11 IS STM. You can even use your EF and EF-S lenses on an EOS R series camera via a range of EOS R mount adapters.
